and, as a matter of fact, is married to a vietnamese woman. when i called him when i was doing the book, he had kept everything -- all the records, all the cable traffic, the telex traffic, all kinds of stuff. the one thing he said, which i think explains it, "we've got to get this right. we've got to get it right." i at one point had said to him, "you wrote a lot to new york and there was a lot of letter traffic, as well as private letter traffic, back-channel stuff." he said, "yes." i said, "do you still have any of that?" he said, "yes." i said, "is any of it about me?" and he said, "yes." i said, "do you think maybe i can have a peek at that?" he said, "yes," and laughed like mad and sent me a whole bunch of stuff. i think that shows a lot of faith. c-span: i moved off the sex too fast because there was something i wanted to ask.
